One of the hardest parts of being in a wheelchair is the way people stereotype us, well at least me. Everyone says they dont stereotype but actions say otherwise. Lots of girls friend zone me because of my disability. I admit, this sometimes makes me into a jerk. They subconsciously just cant see themselves dating me. This is due to their preconceived notions of what i cant do or maybe they just want someone who will not cause them to be looked at in public. I have even had one female tell me i probably couldn't be intimate with here the way she likes so we shouldnt waste our time.
In my mind, I will forever be alone. For some odd reason, the people i am interested in will never return the feelings. I am coming to accept this after a decade of ups and downs in regards to relationships.
This is ok. I will focus on becoming something other than a negative statistic. I wish to become a successful T5 paraplegic. I will have a career and not just a job. I will do all this by myself. I devote my life to removing the stigma associated with wheelchair. I hope this makes it easier for others with disabilities to find love.
I refuse to settle for less and I will continue to be alone as its not fair for me to be with someone just because I am lonely. No one likes to hear someone complain, so I hope this is never read and responded to, it just feels good to get it out there. Don't waste your time judging me because I am losing the will to care what people think.
